On November 17, Emmanuel Macron said that we should not “ politicize sports“. At that time, the French president was talking about the criticisms surrounding the organization of the World Cup in Qatar. Undoubtedly, he did not expect that the question of Palestine would also enter into the competition. As was the case on Tuesday night, on the lawn of the Cité de l’éducation, after a one-sided penalty shoot-out in Morocco’s historic victory over Spain in the round of 16 (0-0, 3 successes to 0).

At the end of the game, the Moroccan players gathered for a group photo with the Palestinian flag, which was also waved by Valladolid defender Jawad El Yamik. Palestinian colors are very present in the stands at this World Cup in Qatar, the first in the disputed Arab world. During the France-Tunisia match, a supporter invaded the pitch with this flag.
